I remember trying to start my pickup one cold day at the park. Wouldn't go at all. Battery was fairly new, so I didn't suspect that.
Visual inspection showed the positive battery clamp had broken. Screwdriver wouldn't work. Had a pair of vice grips in my small toolbox I carried. Was able to apply enough pressure on the clamp with the vice grips. Had to be sure the vice grips were not near anything metal, and it got me home fine.
Didn't take any pictures for the album, though. Thinking back to this, it was likely before digital cameras.
